Ray thanks for the donation. Yes I should be staying in Worcester area night of 18th April. If you want to meet up I'm riding to Ironbridge on 19th. Obviously all depends on man and machine keeping going.

That sounds good. I was planning on going to Halfpenny Green on Thursday, so I could accompany you for a bit. Shall I bring a tow rope. :)

YOu can park on our drive if you wish.

Sorry we didn't manage to meet Ray. After a couple of mishaps (broken spoke and drive cable letting go) the Rudge/Mini Motor reached Stafford and the Classic Bike Show today. It's on the NACC stand. It has done pretty much dead on 400 miles so far (not halfway yet). On Sunday evening It will continue it's journey northward.

I would have retraced your route Dave but I forgot what roads you said you'd use. Glad to see you are making good progress. Long may it continue. :)

Still going and stayed in Dufton YHA last night. Was accompanied by a couple of Cubbists, Paul and Steve in Lancashire and escorted around Leyland and Preston. Steve was on a 1972 C50 and Paul a C90 from twenty years later. Rather a wet end to the day later unfortunately. Pic with a Centurion tank on the blog.

Successfully completed LEJOG yesterday on the Raleigh Rudge with Mini Motor making it to John o' Groats after just over 1100 miles. Final report on the blog at https://raleighrudginit.wordpress.com
Thanks to any C90 Club members who have taken an interest. Looking forward to getting back and riding something that doesn't require pedal assistance on the hills.
